    I have been on this pill for a month and the only concerns I have found are mild headaches on average of once a week and just today (day 28) I noticed a soft spot in my skull.

    After only a week of taking this medication I would cry at the drop of a hat. I felt depressed and very emotional. Friends and family kept asking if I was okay. Stopped taking it and wa-la I feel normal again.
